Q and A Shaving Tips

Is it better to use hot, cold, or warm water to shave?
Warm water is best for hydrating beard hair. Soaking in warm water softens hair and causes it to expand, making it 70 per cent easier to cut.

What is the best way to avoid razor burn?
If the skin is not properly prepared before shaving or if the blade on your razor is dull, you are more likely to end up with razor burn. Make sure to hydrate hair in warm water for up to three minutes and apply plenty of shave gel. Also, you may want to consider changing the blade on your razor at the first sign of dullness or discomfort.

Does shaving make your hair grow back thicker?
Scientists at Gillette have conducted extensive testing on the effects shaving has on both male and female hair growth, texture and colour. This testing has proven that shaving does not affect hair growth, colour, or texture. Shaving does, however, alter the tip shape or the regrown hair, which may initially change the way hair feels as it grows back. However, if hair is left to regrow completely, it will return to its former state.

In what direction should I shave to achieve the best shave?
Men's facial hair tends to grow in different directions. Start by shaving with light, gentle strokes with the grain. Then, if necessary, go against the grain for an even closer shave.

How do I avoid nicks and cuts, particularly above my upper lip?
The area above the upper lip is tricky for many men. To help avoid nicks and cuts, always leave it for last. Apply plenty of shave gel and allow this area to soak up as much lather as possible. When shaving, don't apply too much pressure. The Gillette Fusion ProGlide Precision Trimmer is really useful when shaving under the nose.

Is it okay to let my girlfriend or wife borrow my men's razor?
For both hygiene and performance, it's not a good idea to share your razor with your partner. Women have a much larger area to shave and you may find that after only a few shaves, you blade has dulled considerably; increasing the likelihood of nicks and cuts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't bother with the dearer power blades 1 Feb 2010
By A. J. Parkes TOP 500 REVIEWER
Verified Purchase
I have the Fusion Power razor, and have been buying the power blades. However, there is s big price difference between the manual and power ones, so I thought that I would take a chance and use the manual ones in my power fusion.

The only difference I have found is that the colour of the lubricating strip is blue instead of orange on the power, and the indicator strip is green not blue. The performance is exactly the same and you can save yourself a few notes in the process by using these instead.

They say that you should get 6 months use out of 8 blades. I have found that you will get a lot more. I use a blade for a full month, replacing it on the 1st of every month. After that, the blades do get a little blunt, but I could probably get a few more weeks out of them, but at the risk of scraping my skin a little. the indicator strip which is a visible sign that the blade needs changing tends to wear off after a few weeks, so I completely ignore this.

Advise anyone who has the excellent Fusion razor to use these blades, you will save money and get the same blades, but not colour co-ordinated to your power razor.

5.0 out of 5 stars Keep them dry and they will last longer! 22 Oct 2010
Verified Purchase
The reason why razors go blunt is through corrosion so if you keep them dry they will last a month maybe more. The Science behind the 5 blades is to raise hair up and away from the skin prior to being cut, so each time a blade passes over it cuts a bit more off so you need fewer strokes and end up with a nice clean shave. Amazon sells them two to three quid cheaper than all high street super markets!

I will only buy from a known source now. These blades are possibly copies or rejects. I thought the first one was just a glitch but they all tare my face apart. Bought some from Tesco's and they are fine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best shave a man can get 24 Dec 2009
Verified Purchase
After trying a great many different type of blades, and after many years of sticking to the Mach 3 Turbo blades, I am now a convert to Gillette Fusion. I did try some Tesco cheapies, but I looked like I had been attacked by a bunch of Ninja warriors. Fusion are of course the most expensive blades, true; but they outlast other types of blade by at least 3 times so are actually very cost-effective. And when you consider the great deals on toiletries at Amazon, what's not to like? I am more than satisfied with this product, especially from Amazon.

By mogs
Verified Purchase
I have been buying these blades from amazon and various supermarkets since they arrived on the market---but the first shave from this latest delivery was not as good as the fifteenth shave from the last batch I bought .
Are they the genuine article????
Hard to believe, but they were cheaper than normal!!!
I hope to return them to Amazon tomorrow , as they are painful to use

5.0 out of 5 stars Make them last longer. 22 April 2014
By Marty
Verified Purchase
I use these Fusion manual blades instead of the power ones and they are good. However as with all Gillette blades they are expensive. But I reckon I have found a great way of making them last much longer. I buy a pack of BIC throwaways and use these to shave with the grain (downwards) This removes most of the stubble.Then I use my Gillette fusion blades to shave against the grain(upwards). I end up with a perfectly smooth skin, and I can make a Gillette blade last around two months. Brilliant.Try it and see for yourself. Bics only cost about a quid for 10,but go steady with them because they are sharp.

4.0 out of 5 stars Glad it slices my hair, not my face 16 Nov 2009
Verified Purchase
My hair is thick and like steel wool, so shaving can be a painful dragging experience. I started using the fusion blades around two years ago and my first reaction was that having 5 blades is a surprising yet significant improvement on 3 blades of the M3. The tug on individual hairs feels less as the pulling force on the hairs is more distributed across the larger razor surface, I get fewer cuts due to this, I used to get on average around 7 cuts per shave, now its down to 1-3 each shave shaving every other day, that may still not sound good but is a big improvement for me.

I started with the fusion power razor but eventually never bothered to replace the battery as it wasn't doing that much for me having the razor vibrate (or emitting strange and wonderful waves of energy as the advert would have you believe, its just vibration!). Note that these ordinary fusion blades (not power blades) will still fit your fusion power razor! You are not tied down to use the more expensive fusion power blades with your fusion power razor as Gillette would have you believe. The standard fusion blades work perfectly well, vibration or no vibration.

The single blade for fine trimming is useless for me. I require this 5 bladed razor as it can make better work of my thicker hair, so trying to use the one blade is not useful, it cannot cut sideburns and in fact it rarely actually even catches a hair to be able to cut it, as if its too retracted into the shaver case and not able to get a good reach into a piece of hair. I guess it may work if you have thinner softer hair but then buying a five bladed top end razor seems like bit of a contradiction.

The blades actually wash surprisingly easily considering it has 5 blades close together.
